South Africa, Discover Exceptional Safaris And Cultural Experiences On A Self Drive Holiday.
South Africa is one of the world's greatest destinations and Cape Town, with its snowy peaks, excellent surf, vibrant nightlife and semi-desert wildlife, is the country's coastal showcase. From hedonists to hikers, the modern to the historical, wild wineries to urban townships, the city welcomes all.
Robben Island proves it didn't always. The prison, which held former president Nelson Mandela for 27 years, acts as a reminder for South Africa's political complexities; visit to absorb the history and to see brilliant views of Cape Town and Table Mountain.
The latter has spectacular views of its own. Ascent is easy via cable car, but for those wishing to walk, the fairly flat hike is worth the effort and the reward for reaching its horizontal summit is a stunning panorama of the city, Atlantic Ocean and the rest of Africa.
Beyond the naked eye is Kruger Park, one of Africa's most accessible and varied wildlife parks. Residing in its two million hectares are the 'Big Five' (buffaloes, rhinos, elephants, leopards and lions) and a safari tour is the best chance of seeing them. Visitors are also likely to come face to face with the park's other residents: giraffes, cheetahs and hippos.
Along the coast there is more to see; take the Garden Route where lush mountainside forests give way to white sands and warm water, and head to the Plettenberg Bay for whale watching. Whether on the savanna or sea, mountain or vineyard, South Africa is a destination that's all about diversity.
